If you've been following the marketing blitz for this summer's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, then chances are good that the running themes of "It all ends here" and "The end is nigh" have jumped out at you. It's only fitting, given that pretty much everyone not living under a rock knows this is THE epic finale to the blockbuster movie series that has spanned a decade.
So it's perhaps fitting that the second clip unveiled from Deathly Hallows: Part 2 should continue that trend - by offering a glimpse at a scene in which we seemingly see the literal end of Harry Potter himself.
Obviously, those who have already read all of the original Harry Potter novels or watched the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 trailer before know that Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) and Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) are prepped to battle it out to the death in this film. Without spoiling the fun for anyone not familiar with the Deathly Hallows book, it's fair to say that a few complications have to be dealt with before that can happen.
On the topic of SPOILERS: This first official Harry Potter clip definitely walks the fine line between being an intense tease of one of the most dramatic scenes in Deathly Hallows: Part 2 - and just giving away a big piece of information in advance. So although this video doesn't really deserve a SPOILER ALERT warning, those unfamiliar with how things are set to go down in the film should still proceed with caution.

Even without watching this scene in context, everyone should be able to tell that this is a big moment for The Boy Who Lived in his fight against Voldemort and the forces of darkness. However, by the time this sequence pops up in Deathly Hallows: Part 2, even viewers who are unfamiliar with the original book(s) will have figured out that there's more of the story to be told.
While fans are already divided over whether or not this was a proper scene to reveal in advance from the last Harry Potter pic, there's no denying that it's an attention-grabbing one - and it should just make the truly devoted all the more excited to see this series of events play out on the big screen. Either way, you probably have goosebumps just from seeing new Deathly Hallows: Part 2 footage.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 finally hits theaters in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D next month on July 15th.
